Basketball too? At 6'5 he'd have to play guard, maybe at the 3 spot. He seems a bit "big" to be a wing player.
I was thinking the same thing. 6'5" is the average height of a two-guard. To put things in perspective, Kobe Bryant, who's a little over 6'6", plays the two-guard. Can you imagine Kobe and A'Shawn playing the same position?
Anyway, I'm really hoping SC can reel him in.
In college he could easily play small forward at 6'5", 300 pounds. He is certainly not a guard.
At 304 lbs., he outweighs most, if not all, centers in the NBA. The 7'0" Dwight Howard, for example, weights 265 lbs and Bynum weights 285 lbs. A'shawn has the weight of a center but the height of a shooting guard.
anyone remember the round mound of rebound Charles Barkley?
No Excuses,'' 11 x National Campions anyday,anytime ,anywhere.
A'Shawn Robinson is no Charles Barkley, though. Moreover, Charles was 252 lbs., not 305 lbs.

Sorry for hijacking this thread; that was not my intention. This should be about football (Trojan football, more specifically), not basketball.
"Easily" was a poor choice of words, I meant to say he would play small forward.
He would not be able to guard a speedy D1 wing player.
Solution: Sit on them.
Wow?? that is all I got to say about the comments on this thread?? Wow
dont know who altadinamike is, but in previous post he made it sound like AR was coming to usc. im assuming he has legit inside info. is that still the feeling?
First off, let me just say that if I where in charge at USC, I'd let him be on the figure skating team or the underwater basket weaving team if he wanted to be. Who gives a poop, he's good at football.
The second thing I want to mention is that USC's two starting forwards (Wise and Fuller) are 6'6", so A'Shawn is tall enough to play that spot in college.
